I flashed Ubuntu for phones on a device and would like the display to stay on while I take photographs or video of the device. How can I do that?


Either, on the device in the terminal app issue the command:-

stop powerd

Alternatively from a computer connected to the device, with the android tools installed issue:-

adb shell stop powerd

There is another way, from: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Testing

# Run this in another terminal window and leave it running to
# make sure display stays on for the tests:
adb shell powerd-cli display on bright
